A Disney Photo Halloween – Day 6

Lest any rogue spirits come creeping in the night, The Pumpkin King stands guard, each year, over the festivities at Haunted Mansion Holiday…

A Disney Photo Halloween – Day 5

Sometimes you just have to bring the Magic home… like when you’re 1,000 miles from the closest Magic!  There’s a wonderful Christmas shop right by my house that has a whole room of villages displayed.  There is, of course, a Mickey Christmas village, but this year there was a little Halloween treat added as well. [...]

A Disney Photo Halloween – Day 4

Lurking on the hillside above a haunted antebellum mansion are a sea of menacing Jack O’Lanterns, their eerie faces smiling down on the unsuspecting crowds below.  What forgotten Gracey family secrets are they hiding?  And what Nightmarish Halloween stories have they caught floating on a fall breeze from the mansion below?

A Disney Photo Halloween – Day 3

When the winds of Halloween start blowing through the tumbleweeds of Disneyland’s Frontierland, a rather unsuspecting oak tree becomes The Halloween Tree.  Adorned with loads of twinkling orange lights and piles of pumpkins, the Halloween Tree was the brain child of Ray Bradbury… a plaque under the tree reads: On the night of Halloween 2007 [...]

Wordless Wednesday – A Disney Photo Halloween Day 2

Day two of the Rays of Disneyland Halloween photo special takes us back to the west coast and right to Disneyland Resort’s World of Disney.  This awesome treehouse sat in the entry to the store from the time it opened until just a year or two ago when the plush room was remodeled.  The centerpiece [...]

A Disney Photo Halloween – Day 1

Welcome to a Disney Photo Halloween on Rays of Disneyland!  I’m celebrating seven days of my favorite spook-tacular Disney pictures, all leading up to a “not-so-scary,” Rays of Disneyland style Halloween Party next week! Day One of this Disney Photo Halloween haunt actually takes us about 3,000 miles from Disneyland to its east coast counterpart, [...]

Wordless Wednesday – Freddie the Bat

Thanks once again to Deb at Focused on the Magic for hosting the Disney Wordless Wednesday blog hop!  Today’s theme is fall and nothing says fall like the Nightmare Before Christmas overlay at the Haunted Mansion.  This picture is from the graveyard in front of the mansion, which also has received some festive decorations for [...]

Halloween Time at Rays of Disneyland

It’s that time of year again, when a cool breeze whispers through the fallen leaves, when pumpkins peer down from the eaves on Main Street, when an eerie sort of orange hue seems to seep from the sunset and soak the night sky, and when ghostly stories catch the bony fingers of the wind and [...]

Happy St. Patty’s Day from The Little Man of Disneyland

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I found this little gem from the D23 Destination D: Disneyland ’55 convention.  The Little Man of Disneyland children’s book was a rare souvenir from the early days of Disneyland.  In this funny little story, Mickey shows a little Leprechaun the lay of the Land.  The Little Man even [...]

Wordless Wednesday – A California Adventure Christmas

A rainy December night, a giant Christmas Tree on Paradise Pier, and a gleaming hidden Mickey… Christmas style.
